NEW Embroidery Designs from Sew4Home!

Though it’s the early days of Fall, it’s never too early to start sewing for the holidays, and our friends at Sew4Home have outdone themselves with this fun and festive Vintage Ornaments embroidery collection, available exclusively from Janome Canada dealers.

Sew4Home Vintage Ornaments Embroidery Collection available through Janome Canada dealers.

These beautiful, colourful embroideries are even more fun since the bows are digitized as separate designs, which means you can omit them, use them on another project, or cover your whole project in bows! Use them however you wish!

Just look at the cute, intricate stitching; just what you’d expect from Sew4Home and your Janome embroidery machine.

You may use these embroidery designs however you wish, but Sew4Home has created a BONUS project tutorial for you to add a splash of colour and festive holiday cheer to your table with a set a napkins. Be sure to check out Sew4home.Com for more great decorating ideas, too!

Once again, the Vintage Ornaments embroidery collection is available exclusively from Janome Canada dealers. Use the “Where to Buy” tab on the Janome.CA website to find a dealer near you!

Did you know there are different sizes and types of needles? Your Janome Dealer has a variety of needles from which to choose.

Each type of needle has a specific purpose. There’s Stretch and Ball-Point needles for knit fabrics, Leather and Denim for thicker, more dense fabrics, for example. The type and size of the needle is appropriately labeled on the package, but Janome has also tried to make needle selection easy by color-coding some of the most common choices, as well.

Janome Ball Point Size 14 Needle Pack
Janome Ball Point Needles Sz 14 with their rounded tip slip between the fibers of the fabric, rather than pierce, or cut through them. This makes them a great choice for sewing knits.
Janome Denim Needles Sz16 with a larger eye to accommodate thicker threads and a sharp point to pierce dense fabrics and thicker layers.

Janome Blue Tip Needles are a size 11, which means they have a thinner, more slender shaft than the size 16 Denim needles above. This makes them a good choice for thinner, more delicate fabrics like chiffon, organdy, etc. as they won’t leave as big a hole in the fabric, and are a good choice for the dense stitching of embroidery for the same reasons. The needles have a larger eye and a slightly rounded ball-point at the tip, which makes them a good choice for sewing some knits, as well.

For more about the many types of Janome Needles, click HERE.

Janome Blue Tip Sz 11 Needle – keep your drawer well-stocked with these as they’re sew useful!

Janome Red Tip Needles are a size 14, which means they have a thicker, more study shaft than the Janome Blue Tip size 11 needles above. They have a sharp point and larger eye to accommodate thicker threads. They are a good choice for the majority of everyday sewing; piecing quilting cotton, home-dec fabrics, but they’re a also a good choice for embroidery as the larger eye will help prevent thread breakage. Always do a test sample with your fabric and thread to determine which needle is best for your project. If your thread is fraying and breaking, try going up a needle size, from an 11 to a 14, for example.

Conversely, if the thread is springy and twists and bounces around, try reducing the size of the needle; one with a smaller eye to control the thread.

Janome Red Tip Needles (Size 14)
Janome Red Tip Needles Sz 14 with a sharp point and larger eye are a good choice for the majority of sewing projects.

If you’re getting skipped stitches, try a Janome Purple Tip Needle size 14 with it’s unique Cobra or flared head, just below the eye of the needle, which helps spread the fibers of the fabric so the needle thread can intersect with the bobbin thread more easily, especially through thicker, more dense layers. For many free-motion quilters, and those who use tightly woven batik fabrics, this is their needle of choice! It’s also a great choice when using metallic threads and densely digitized embroidery designs. Once you have tried these needles you will always want to have a pack on hand for emergencies! Don’t be caught without them!

Janome Purple Tip Sz 14 Needle with larger eye and flared Cobra head will eliminate skipped stitches.

As a general rule, change your sewing machine needle about 8 hour of sewing, or with every new project. Dense fabrics and sewing through thicker layers will dull the needle more quickly. It’s a good idea to also inspect the opening in your needle plate from time to time, especially if you’ve recently broken a needle. A tiny imperfection, or burr can catch the thread and cause breakage. As part of your inspection, be sure to clean your machine often, particularly under the needle plate, around the bobbin area and feed dogs, as well!

Sew4Home MINI TIP Buttonholes!

How to Make a Machine Buttonhole: Automatic and Four-Step

Most of us understand how to sew on a button. Pretty easy and not scary at all. But buttonholes are a whole different matter. At the end of your project, after you’ve put in so much work, it’s time to for the buttonholes. You should be happy you’re almost done. But for many of us, beads of sweat start to form across our brows and we wonder, “Am I about to ruin everything by botching the buttonholes?” Well, you can stop sweating, because our friends at S4H have broken it down into individual steps. They’ve put together easy-to-follow instructions on how to put in a buttonhole using both automatic and basic sewing machines. From marking where it goes, to hiding that final thread tail.

Know Your Basic Buttonholes

Before you start, you should be familiar with the most commonly used buttonholes and what they’re designed to do.

Below is a Square buttonhole, which is widely used on medium to heavy weight fabrics. It’s a standard buttonhole for garments, and the one you would be most likely to use in home décor projects. You can usually make this style of buttonhole on even the most of basic sewing machines.

Buttonhole number two is rounded at one end and is used on fine to medium weight fabrics, especially for blouses or children’s clothes.

A buttonhole rounded at both ends is best on fine, delicate fabrics, such as silk.

The keyhole buttonhole is widely used on medium to heavy weight fabrics. It’s also suitable for larger and thicker buttons because the keyhole at one end allows a bit of an extra opening to push in a thicker button.

The open-effect buttonhole shown below is a stretch buttonhole, which can be used on stretch fabrics or on standard fabrics for a decorative effect.

A second option for knits is called, appropriately enough, a knit buttonhole. As with the stretch buttonhole above, this style could also be used on regular fabrics to create a decorative touch.

How to Sew an Automatic Buttonhole

One of the reasons we love the mid-range to high-end Janome models is because of how easily they do buttonholes (some machines have a dozen or more styles included). In general, the steps are as automatic as they come, and the results are always beautiful.

Always test sew your buttonhole before sewing it on your project. And be sure you’re testing under exactly the same conditions. That means on a scrap of the same fabric, in the same thickness, with the same stabilizer, and using the same thread.

Stabilize your fabric behind where the buttonhole will be stitched. For this example on a standard quilting weight cotton, we used a medium-weight fusible stabilizer.

Using a fabric pen and ruler, mark the near end of the buttonhole (the end closest to the edge of your project) and where the opening slit will be. There’s no need to mark the far end, since the machine will determine that automatically.

Insert your button into the back of the Janome Automatic Buttonhole foot. The foot has a sensor that will make a buttonhole in the appropriate size for your button. 

Attach the foot to the machine and pull down the buttonhole lever.

Choose your desired buttonhole. For this demonstration, we chose a basic square buttonhole.

Place your stabilized fabric under the foot. Position it so the needle will pierce at the intersection of the two marked lines. Your marked lines look like the letter, “T” – drop the point of the needle at the exact meeting point of the vertical line with the horizontal line. Hand crank the needle until it goes into the fabric.

Align your fabric as needed so the buttonhole will be sewn straight. We used the measuring guides on the machine’s sewing bed.

Start sewing. You can use a foot controller or a Start/Stop button. With either method, the machine sews all four sides of the buttonhole automatically and then stops.

If you want to sew additional buttonholes of the same size, just lift the presser foot, align the fabric on your next set of marks, and stitch the next buttonhole.

Remove your fabric from the machine and trim the thread tails. Then, carefully open the center slit to accept a button.

How to Sew a Basic 4-Step Buttonhole

The more basic sewing machines use a four-step process to sew a buttonhole. It requires a little extra measuring on your part. And when you’re sewing, you’ll need to manually stop at the appropriate buttonhole length.

To start, stabilize your fabric where the buttonhole will be stitched. As above, for this example we again used a medium-weight fusible stabilizer.

Mark your buttonhole on your fabric with a ruler and fabric pen, making it ¼” larger than your button. Mark both ends and the center buttonhole slit.

Attach the buttonhole foot to your machine. Align your fabric under the foot so the needle will pierce the intersection of the “T” markings at the back of the buttonhole. (Some machine models start the 4-step at the front, so be sure to check your manual.) Hand crank the balance wheel until the needle pierces the fabric.

Janome My Style 100.

On your machine, set the stitch selector to buttonhole Step 1.

Start sewing. Slow down as you near the front of your buttonhole. Stop exactly at the marked end point.

Select buttonhole Step 2. Sew about six stitches.

Select buttonhole Step 3. 

Start sewing. Slow down as you return to the back of your buttonhole. Stop exactly at the marked end point (just like you did above for the opposite side).

Select buttonhole Step 4. Sew about six stitches (just like you did at the front of the buttonhole). Remove your fabric from under the foot. Leave long tails when you snip your threads.

Using a hand needle, pull your thread tails to the back and knot them to secure.

Carefully cut open the buttonhole.

Couching with your Embroidery Machine?

Traditionally, couching; stitching yarn or a thin decorative trim at regular intervals to fabric, is done with a zig-zag stitch using the regular sewing machine. But, did you know you can also add this fun, decorative, dimensional texture to your project using your Janome embroidery machine?

Combine traditional embroidery stitching with the textural decorative element of couching using your embroidery machine!

Janome has a couple of Embroidery Couching options available for you. Janome Skyline S9 owners, for example, have this feature included with their machines. Watch a embroidery couching demo on the Skyline S9 on the Janome HQ You Tube channel.

Janome MC15000 V2 and updated models to include Janome MC15000 Quilt Maker can purchase Part Number 202-297-008 in order to add embroidery couching to these machines.

If you have one of the embroidery-only machines listed – Janome MC550E, MC500E, MC450E and MC400E, Janome has the Embroidery Couching Foot Set, Part Number 202-316-004. An updated Janome Bulletin with more information was recently posted to the Janome Global Site, which is where you may also download the special embroidery couching designs for free!

7 Embroidery Couching designs sized for the SQ14b 5.5″ x 5.5″ hoop.
3 Embroidery Couching designs sized for the SQ20b 7.9″ x 7.9″ hoop.

What makes these embroidery designs so special is that they are open designs; not very dense, with continuous line stitching without a lot of backtracking, or repetitive stitches over the design. A traditional, densely digitized embroidery design would not work as the build-up of stitching over yarn would be too much for the machine to handle. It would be a total mess and trying to stitch over such thickness could potentially damage the machine.

Don’t fret if the packaging at your Janome Dealer does not list the Janome MC550E on the blister pack. The Janome Embroidery Couching Foot Set will still work on the machine. It just means you have an older package which hasn’t been updated to include the more recent machine model. Janome releases so many fabulous machines, it’s hard to keep up sometimes, lol!

Full instructions are on the back of the blister pack.
Add MC550E to the list!

Included in the kit is a hook which attaches to the top of your machine where the secondary spool pin goes. Place the yarn over the hook prevent it from tangling, and to keep it feeding freely. You don’t want the yarn to pull tight, which will prevent it from being stitched down as easily. The more relaxed the yarn is, the better the results.

The secret to using a straight stitch in the embroidery machine to couch the yarn instead of using a zig-zag stitch is the ingenious design of the Janome Patented presser feet, labeled PC-A and PC-B. Each presser foot has a little trap door, as I call it, which pivots opens to easily position the yarn in the centre of the foot. Once in place, close the trap door and the yarn is held in place directly under the needle, no matter which direction the hoop is moving. Brilliant! Janome has done it again!

This cute butterfly is one of the 10 FREE Embroidery Couching designs available from the Janome Global Site.
Left is the regular P embroidery foot included with the machine. On the right is the special PC-A embroidery couching foot, used for thinner yarns. Attached to the machine is the PC-B foot, used with thicker yarns.
The Janome Patented Embroidery Couching Presser Feet makes positioning the yarn in the centre of the foot, directly under the needle sew easy!

Full instructions are included with the Janome Embroidery Couching Foot Set, so there’s no guesswork setting up your machine. It’s such a fun technique, and a great way to use up bits of yarns you may have left over from other projects, or, a great way to get your “yarn fix”, as I call it, without having to learn how to knit or crochet. I have no time for another hobby, but I love the soft texture and colours of yarns, and love the dimension and texture they add to whatever the project.

You can use a variety of yarns and soft cords for embroidery couching, but avoid the very fine baby yarns, as they’re too fine to catch in the stitching. Also avoid dense, stiff cords like rat-tail cording, (on the left below) or twine, which will be harder to stitch through. Those cords are best to couch using the zig-zag stitch on the sewing machine, which will sew to either side of the cord, not through it. As well, carefully inspect the yarn for slubs and knots which will likely get caught in the foot, preventing the yarn from feeding freely. If a yarn is too thick, or, as in the example, below, has an additional strand of yarn wrapped around it, try untwisting the yarn to separate the strands, making it more useable.

A variety of looks using different types and thickness of yarn. The butterfly in the top left corner is just the design, no yarn couched over it. You’re the designer, use them as you wish! And the 10 embroidery couching designs are FREE on the Janome Global Site!
http://www.janome.co.jp/e/e_downloads/emb_couching.html

It’s so fun to watch these designs come to life; they don’t take long to stitch, so you’ll want to stay at the machine and help guide the yarn as needed, mainly from pulling taught. When you want to switch to regular stitching, no yarn couching, no need to change the presser foot back to the original, just leave it on and keep on stitching!

Resize and Copy using the editing functions built-in to your machine.

It’s that quick and easy to add yarn couching to any project! We’d love to see what you’re stitching, so be sure to hashtag us #janomecanada #janomelife #sharethejanomelove and @janomecanada on social media.

Happy Sewing!

Sew4Home Mini Sewing Tips – Arrow Sewing Chairs!

Arrow Chairs – Sew4Home Mini Review

Have a seat. Let’s chat for a moment about your sewing set-up. As you sit, think about whether or not you’re comfortable. Is your back well supported? Is the height of your chair appropriate for the working level of your machine? Is your chair cute? Granted, that last question isn’t necessarily going to impact your posture and comfort, but having your chair covered in a fun, colorful fabric can certainly impact your mood!

We took a look at the Arrow Sewing Chairs available at Arrow/ Kangaroo Dealers exclusively from Janome Canada and were impressed with both the variety and features available at a very competitive prices. 

Arrow Four Post Chairs

These chairs were an immediate favorite with the S4H team. The solid wooden design makes them very sturdy, but that stability doesn’t mean they sacrifice creativity. We loved the scalloped seat base edges on three of the chair design combos – just a super cute touch. But, of course, if sleek and simple is your preference, there’s an option for you as well. Choose from a white scalloped wood base with fabric featuring either novelty sewing notions or jumbo bright buttons; an aqua scalloped wood base with the novelty sewing notions fabric, or a straight cut oak base, again with the sewing notions fabric. Lift up the padded seat to reveal a hidden storage area for notions or patterns. Smart and space saving!

Cute Scallop detail and a fun print brightens up any sewing room!

Good looking? Check! So, how about the comfort features. We liked how the wide back rest provided targeted lumbar support. The heavy duty casters on all four legs roll smoothly across most flooring surfaces, and we didn’t have any issues with them leaving marks on a hard floor. Each chair is rated to hold up to 250 pounds. 

Arrow Four Post Wooden Leg chairs are available in a variety of finishes and fabric patterns and colours.

Finally, take note that the chair height is 22”. This particular chair is not adjustable, so make sure this is a height that will work with your sewing machine cabinet, table or counter. 

The Arrow Four Post Chairs are available at Arrow/ Kangaroo dealers exclusively from Janome Canada, starting at $399 CAD on select models, September 15th – October 29th, 2021! That’s over a $100 savings!

Arrow Hydraulic Chairs

Not everyone in the S4H studio is a fan of “sitting still”, so they gravitated to the Arrow Hydraulic Chairs. With easy adjustable height controls and smooth rolling wheels, these resemble a traditional office chair… but with SEW much more style. The hydraulic base itself only comes in black, but you can can pair it with six different whimsical print fabrics or five rich solid colors. We were total fans of the super cute Sewing Cat’s Meow fabric. All the fabric selections are a durable, upholstery fabric – the same as used above on the Four Post Chairs.

Arrow Hydraulic Chairs in signature Janome fabric.

We loved the seat storage on the Four Post Chairs, so we were delighted to see it on these Hydraulic Chairs as well. It’s a pretty unique feature for this type of chair design that can swivel side to side. Good idea, Arrow! 

All Arrow chairs have hidden storage under the seat!

The base features five wheels with easy-roll casters. Cheap adjustable chairs often only have four, which can make moving more difficult. We had plenty of mobility around our sewing space. 

The chairs raise and lower with fingertip lever control from approximately 18” – 22” and support up to 250 pounds.

The Arrow Hydraulic Chairs are available from Arrow/ Kangaroo dealers exclusively from Janome Canada starting at $399 CAD on select models, September 15th – October 29th, 2021. That’s over a $100 savings!

Visit your participating Janome Canada Dealer for a free “test sit.” The more comfortable you are when you’re sewing, the longer you can work in comfort and creativity. 

But remember, it’s always a good idea to get up to move and stretch during your sewing time. If you’d like more information, check out our S4H article: Keep Fit While You Sit: 10 Simple Exercises for Sewers.

Ed: for the month of September and October, Janome Canada is offering some terrific promotions! Check with out the Janome.CA website for details!
